The Ruler of The Kingdom of The Air

On another Sabbath, Jesus entered the synagogue and was teaching.

The Lord’s Servant Must Not Be Quarrelsome

If any phrase captures our culture today it’s, “Fight to the Death!“. Or better yet, “No Holds Barred”. But the fact remains, honey catches more flies than vinegar. How do I know? Because the Bible tells me so (see above). There is more at stake than just winning an argument. And by the way, if…

Bless and Do Not Curse

He Was Wounded for Our Transgressions

“Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone…

In The Beginning

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has…

The Best Explanation for 8 Well-Supported Claims about Jesus’ Resurrection is, Jesus is Lord

Without the resurrection, we do not have a foundation for our beliefs. Accordingly, I identified eight well-supported claims concerning Jesus’ resurrection. I recently created a meme and labelled these well-supported claims…

Thanks Be to God for His Indescribable Gift!

Honesty is Still the Best Policy

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.  (Romans 12:2) The term “scapegoat” wasn’t officially coined until 1530 A.D., and then only as a mistranslation of a Hebrew word found in a biblical…

Disarmed By Grace

“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. …

Did Jesus Abolish the Law?

This is a hotly debated topic, and for good reason; as it is fundamental to understanding God’s dealings with mankind, both now and throughout history. Anything this important is worth our time and effort, don’t you think? So let’s get started, shall we? There are two places where the word abolish is used in the…
